Out of order, again

I blame Trump

Forgot to hit send on Thursday night jokes.

Chicago White Sox have hired 76 year old Tony LaRussa as manager. So they’re making a play to win the 2012 World Series.

It’s enough that many coaches are the age of their players’ parents. Tony is probably older than most of their grandparents.

Was rowing coxswain some years back. When it got close to end of race & everyone was exhausted, one of my favorite lines was “It will hurt less if we win.” That’s how I feel less than 100 hours until Nov 3. We’re all exhausted, but it will hurt less if we win.

Maybe for some it was funny when Trump attacked NY & Calif, while threatening to withhold funding from Blue States. But now clear w/ his Superspreader rallies & lack of concern for natural disasters that Donald doesn’t give a damn about Red States either.

Trump postpones his North Carolina rally this afternoon due to high winds. But still, after not tweeting a warning can’t be bothered to send good wishes to RED states affected by Zeta.

Not saying Joe Biden will be perfect, he won’t be. But he will be a President for all 50 states.

Just once I’d like to get an email from a campaign saying… we’re doing great on fundraising, thanks for your support, so please donate to someone else.

Not that I miss him but anyone seen Bill Barr?

Commercial tonight falsely accusing Democrats of being “far left:” “Republicans aren’t perfect but they’re the only ones who can bring America back.” Uh, remind me who’s running the country?

Weather might be a factor. But just wondering, as Trump has been pushing Republicans to vote in person, if this results in actual lines might some of them give up and go home on Election Day?

Melania campaigns w/ Donald, says Trump “focusing on creating ways for people to safely stop isolating & safely gathering w/ friends at safe distance.’ In front of “about 6,000 unmasked people packed so tightly they were sprayed w/ water to keep them cool.” There is no satire.

Trump today claimed at his rally that “we locked down and now we’re open for business.” Well, hospitals and mortuaries for sure.

Dr. Deborah Birx reportedly decided in late summer that she wouldn’t sit in meetings any more with Dr. Scott Atlas and went out on her own to try to fight COVID-19 Good for her I suppose, but why didn’t Dr. Birx speak out?

Cheaters sometime prosper?

We’ll never know for sure, but AJ Hinch, who received a one year suspension this year as the Astros skipper, probably wasn’t the guiltiest person in Houston.

But today, as he was announced as manager of the Tigers, Hinch said his phone rang “About 30 minutes after the last out of the World Series.”

30 minutes after it was legal for any team to call him. Any questions on white male privilege?

-Trump RTing Praise from Brett Favre today. I’m so old I remember when Saints were criticized for hitting Favre too hard in the NFC championship game. Now….? You’re welcome.

A friend points out that maybe it was possible Brett Favre meant to endorse Biden, but it was intercepted.

True of both football & politics; few leads are really safe & the prevent defense often prevents you winning. In tonight’s University of Minnesot vs Maryland game the Golden Gophers blew 17 point 4th quarter lead and then lost in OT when they missed a PAT kick.

While I feel bad for Amy Klobuchar, who’s a big University of Minnesota football fan, it’s a good reminder, with election in less than 3 days – NEVER LET UP. – #WinBig

Lindsey Graham tonight claimed Barrett “was 1 of most qualified nominees to ever be nominated to Supreme Court.” Uh, nothing personal against Coney Barrett. But privileged upbringing, expensive small liberal arts college in Memphis, good law degree from Notre Dame -ranked 22nd in country – & less than 3 years on bench…. not exactly RBG territory.

Trump only spoke for 21 minutes in Rochester, MN tonight. That’s barely enough time for Donald to contradict himself in the same speech.

Sure, not everyone who attends a Trump superspreader event gets sick. People have been known to survive playing Russian Roulette too.

Melania Trump “I was shocked to discover that some of these powerful people have tried to paint my husband as anti-gay or against equality.”Did she also say she was shocked to discover there was gambling in Las Vegas?

Meanwhile, Donald Trump wished Ivanka a happy birthday on Twitter. He didn’t wish Melania a happy birthday on Twitter. I’m sure it’s just a coincidence.

At all Trump rallies Donald attacks rivals, his own administration officials, media etc.

But Fox News headline? “Biden rips ‘ugly’ Trump supporters”

Joe’s quote-“Dr. Fauci called for mask mandate. This isn’t poltical statement like those ugly folks over there beeping horns. This is a patriotic duty, for God’s sake.”

Trump hotel already sold out election week for $1000 a night & up. With nonrefundable rates. Now Trump plans to move his election night party to the… WHITE HOUSE? Because he says “I don’t know if you’re allowed to use (the hotel) or not.” As if rules matter to Donald.

So did Trump move his Election Night Party from his hotel, where he can’t ban anyone who paid for a room, to the White House because this way he can keep reporters from seeing him cry?

Saw a Trump rally goer saying if Joe Biden wins the election she is leaving the country. Wait until she finds out Donald’s incompetence with COVID-19 has made it so that most other countries have banned us!

If only Donald Trump had fought half as hard against COVID-19 as he is fighting now to take away your vote!

The pen is mightier than the sword. Especially when it’s a blue or black ink pen used to fill in your ballot.
